Youth workers and educators meet to discuss collaborative efforts: Engaging youth and adolescents as digital media producers in support of learning

Initiated by LTML and the Center for Youth Development at the University of Minnesota (CYD), a working group met to explore the collaborative possibilities including joint projects and research studies. Representatives from both in-school and out-of-school settings within the Twin Cities participated, motivated to “dig in” together as researchers and practitioners interested in youth and adolescents engaging in digital media production in support of learning. Participants included educators and youth workers from LTML, CYD, the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Hennepin County Library, St. Paul Public Library, TV by Girls, South High School, Washburn High School, St. Paul Neighborhood Network, and The Learning Branch.
